Hypernarrative has a catagory about interactive storytelling. Well the send.a.message project couldn’t be more about interactive storytelling. You send a message through the website, for â‚¬30,- a Palestinian sprays your tag on the West Bank Barrier and sends you in return the photos of your text on the wall.
I don’t like walls, they never really solved problems. We build a wall when the difference between two places or cultures seems too complex to be solved.
We lock up criminals, because they clash with society. We build walls around our belongings because we want to control the climate and protect our belongings. We build closed compounds in rural areas to ‘protect’ ourselves and our belongings. And sometimes we build walls around or through countries.
A wall will never solve a problem, it will make things controllable for a certain time by limiting freedom.
